Stephen Dunn Quotes (displaying: 1 - 17 of 17 quotes)
That time I thought I was in love and calmly said so was not much different from the time I was truly in love and slept poorly and spoke out loud to the wall and discovered the hidden genius of my hands And the times I felt less in love, less than someone, were, to be honest, not so different either. Each was ridiculous in its own way and each was tender, yes, sometimes even the false is tender. I am astonished by the various kisses we’re capable of. Each from different heights diminished, which is simply the law. And the big bruise from the long fall looked perfectly white in a few years. That astounded me most of all.
Altruism is for thosewho can't endure their desires. There's a worldas ambiguous as a moan, a pleasure moanour earnest neighborsmight think a crime. It's where we could live. I'll say I love you, Which will lead, of course, to disappointment, but those words unsaidpoison every next moment. I will try to disappoint youbetter than anyone else has.--Mon Semblable
